  • upgrading from 3.8.2 to latest 3.8.6

    I am going to upgrade my forums from 3.8.2 to latest 3.8.x , i think its 3.8.6

    Do I upgrade by uploading all files again and running install or is there some patch?

    You should upload by overwritting your forum files from the 3.8.6 package and then running the upgrader. But don''t forget to make firat a thorough backup of your db though

      Once you have uploaded all the 3.8.6 PL1 files you run upgrade.php not install.php.

        Is it essential to upload all files? I'm struggling with a slow connection and surely not all files are updated...is there a list anywhere of changed files for this upgrade?

          Yes, you should upload all the files.

                There's an option when you download to download the package with no images, this saves significant time when uploading the new files. I don't think any new images were added so you should be OK with this option.
